Hi, I'm writing because of some comments on supposed boring menu layout (interface)... well, I've chosen the Citybeat theme, and it rocks! Interface changes completely, it's got icons organised in one row (not 4x3 grid like before) and the background is all black, with white text and red reflections... great! And a great phone, too. Keyboard may be not the best out there, but it is a very sensible solution for something this small, much better than rubber k800 keys. Cheeers!
nice slim phone. However, the keyboard buttons r so small, very diffecult to type. bad use of space!
hey guys ..SE still have phones that it didnt shows yet .. so dont be afraid better Walkman phones will come up
i hate s.e the phones all do the same thing. they dont changes there menus or offer new features, just different sizes and shapes and colours. they are very lazy
There is no flash with camera !!
I think Sony Ericsson will lose many customers if still on this situation .
already avaliable in Poland for moreless $470. i'll have it next week :)
It looks good and feels great to use. Texting is pleasant enough with next word prediction,but it could get you into trouble though depending on the content of your usual txt messages! Luckily you can turn that feature off. Ringtones are loud enough for general use,but there's no bass at all when playing MP3s even with the megabass setting on. That doesn't bother me,but it may bother anyone comparing it to previous walkman models. Camera could be better. If,like me,you want a slim phone above anything else then go for this one!
The last phone I had was a Nokia 6100 so I've been behind the times for a while.
i've tried this phone yesterday and it feels great.the lack of radio isn't a problem cause i rarely use it (because it's crap anyway.it lacks bass etc etc...).the main thing that i disliked is the old interface.and i don't mean it's functionality,cause that is great (fast,easy to use,good options) but the looks of it.two years ago i had a k500i.it barely came out then,i got fascinated by it,and got me one.and the menu looks almost the same.it's designed like for a 5 year old kid.you pull out of your pocket a cracking phone but with an interface for a baby.now it looks so boring.and you can't change it via themes like you can do at samsung,at nokia and at other producers.the icons are looking as stupid as before.
It looks nice. It feels nice. It works perfect. I use the phone one week now and be honest this is a nice mobile. OK, the missing radio is a mistake but I owned many many mobiles and nothing is perfect. SE and Samsung are the best mobiles in the world, depends where you put your highlight.
This W880 is made as a Samsung, I mean made with good materials. It carry the price of a Samsung too, I mean it is far away from cheap. But it has the extreme easy to use SE software loaded on it what makes you setup and configure your phone in less as 15 min, all done e-mail included. Nice from SE. Good job
man im sorry too, im just upset w/ the new walkman this year, i thought i can already upgrade my walkman. we are buddys dude, i am an SE fan, actually im debating w/ a nokia fan in nokia forums here. cos i read sumthing there that sum1 said SE are for poor people, w/c is absolutely wrong. SE rocks!
this phone is so lighttat u cant feel it in ur pants .only bad point e speaker is not solid enough bt a gd phone to use!
a brilliant handset, a sleek design and small and slim. all applications works awesome and very quick access from one application to another. battery life is good as well, lasted for 2 days even on bluetooth use. Sound...not as good as W850 maybe becos of small slim speaker...but its still acceptable. very poor sound on speakerphone...:( ...Overall. 8/10!!
I think that sony ericsson is aiming now to the "beatiful phone, featureless phone, expensive phone" style that uses motorola: they make phones with some simple features, put in it a good design and sell it to higher prices than the ideal one. And writing sms in this phone will make your fingers cry of pain lol.
Well after a week using the w880i i have to say its an amazing phone, its jus so slim feels nice in the hands and also looks great. I cud link the w880 wid my laptop an use the internet, boomin pice bt worth a quick email check on the train. The sound is great, but if u had the w900i like me, an jus like me u wud b disappointed wid the camera, no doubt the 2mp in the w900 was like a 3mp an much more coz of the large screen, bt the w880 has a standard pic quality, bt it passes to the size of the phone. Overall......9/10 for SE brand
My previous phone was a W900i And i upgraded to this a weekago an i have to say; i have everything ive had in the w900i plus more all in a much much slimmer package. A w900i in your pocket or even in a belt clip is bulkly and annoying, while this phone fits in the smallest hidden pocket of my jeans and goes unnoticed unless i want it to be noticed. You can actually stack 3 of these phones on top of each other and match the w900i in size. You have to see this phone IRL before you can see it's ingenius beauty.
take it easy man i wasn't talking to you i'm the biggest sonyericsson fan in the world i wrote this to some nameless person who foul talking about SE and the w880 couple of times he praises nokia i think you could read his opinion in the first page p.s I own a p990i and z610 and i owned once a w900 about a year ago it's the greatest music phone ever who told you it's a failure you got me wrong peace out.
no we are just upset to the new walkman releases, i thought of something very good this year, but really bad walkmanfones ,im a sony ericsson fan, and im using w900i, do you think w900i is a failure??? shame on you,even its 2yrs old, its still the best walkman.
im using it for 2years already and im really upset because after 2 years there still no walkman fone to make me upgrade. still my w900i is the best walkmanfone evermade!i think your fone is more of a failure than mine. your more of a looser than me.
